ENG vs WI Dream11 Match Prediction, Cricket, England vs West Indies – 2nd Test, 16 July

ENG vs WI Dream11 Prediction: After stunning the hosts in the 1st test, West Indies are all set to face England in the 3-match test series starting from Thursday. West Indies managed to defeat England by 4 wickets in the first test on the back of some all-round performances with both bat and the ball. It is now a golden opportunity for the men from the Caribbean to seal the historic series victory by winning this game. English team, on the other hand, would be eager to bounce back from their loss to save the series. They need to win this test at any cost if they want to take the series to the final game. It would be interesting to see the approach of both sides in this game as the pitch of the Old Trafford is likely to assist the slow bowlers.
